Fabulous heater - But ignore the installation instructions
on 14 January 2012
received this heater 2 days ago.
day 1. Ran the heater as a stand alone to make sure all worked well. It did.
Day 2. Installed the heater onto a wall in my conservatory. Turn to the wall mounting installation page and cross out the dimensions - they are simply wrong. Everything else is fine (finding the middle of the wall where you want the unit to go, drawing lines and so on - its just the distances which are incorrect). Perhaps I got the manual for a shorter heater.
It does look good on the wall, which is classed as a "dwarf wall" and is long from left to right but short from top to bottom - the heater looks like it was bought as part of the conservatory rather than an add-on. The power cable is only 1M long which may be a problem for some if the power outlet is some distance away.
The addition of a 24hr timer is great - went out today and came back to a nice warm room.
The heater itself is lovely, works like a charm and is silent apart from when the thermostat switches off and you get the little clicks of contracting metal. Any heater will do this, and I've tried quite a few before getting this one.
I so wish I had seen this heater a few years ago. I have now a nice collection of 1Kw, 2Kw and 3Kw heaters in my garage (both convection and fan types) but this 2Kw unit is simply brilliant.
I have a wall mounted thermostat in the conservatory and this morning it read 7.2c - I put the heater on and made myself some breakfast. 50 minutes later I returned to find the temperature at 22.3c, which I find quite warm.
The room is a 3M x 3M square, the roof peaks at 3M - so you get an idea of how much cubic capacity this little gem can heat.
As I write this, the outside static air tem is 1c whilst the conservatory is at 22.9c.
It does not heat the air rapidly like a fan assisted unit but I can say that it does the job, very well, is simple to operate, quiet and looks good when mounted on a wall.
Just wish I had discovered this a few years ago.
